We believe it’s essential to begin teaching Bible skills from a very young age. As kids learn the different divisions and structure of the Bible, they will understand God’s Word more clearly, providing a foundation for heart transformation.
We’ve developed a free Bible Skills Activity Guide for families and groups. Fill out the form below to download the guide and make copies for every family in your ministry. Parents will love the help as they seek to disciple their kids this summer.
By signing up for this Bible Skills Activity Guide, you will also receive free access to preview sessions of Explore the Bible.

Last year, we posted a blog that provided a downloadable Advent guide for kids ministers to share with every family in their ministry. The response from families and kids ministers was amazing! So amazing, in fact, that we decided to repeat this year. You’ll find the same format with updated content to help parents lead their families into deeper discipleship.
Kids ministers, click the image below to download and print out Advent guides, and then pass them out on Sunday, or email out the link in your weekly newsletter. This is just one more way to make sure you’re equipping parents to lead the way in the spiritual development of their kids.
